Default Degassing wine the quick and easy way.

Shaking a DJ to get rid of the CO2 takes time and effort and using a big spoon to degas a bucket of wine is not the most efficient way to do it, a degassing wand makes degassing a minute job.

You can also use it to mix all your ingredients meaning you dont have to heat water to dissolve the sugar, this saves time and cleaning pans etc.

How to make a degassing wand from an old coat hanger, watch click tricks video -

When using the wand start in forwards for 5 seconds then switch to reverse for 5 and keep doing this for a minute.

Its a plastic coat hanger, i sterilise it before use and have had no problems with my wines (i have made many gallons) it is only in contact with the wine for a minute or two so i don't worry about it not being food grade.

Thanks chippy, i love making things my self, i am a very enthusiastic DIY'r, i can turn my hand to just about anything. Could i ask how you bend it? The coat hangers i have are made of brittle plastic. Is it a wire coat hanger with a plastic coating?

I have just been to aldi to buy a pipe bender to make my own wort chiller but it will only bend pip through through 180 degrees, so its a no hope'r. I'm just wondering if i can make a square chiller, i wouldn't have thought that the shape mattered, be it round or square. as long as the cold water flows through it. I'l give it a go at some point.

Does any one know how it actually removes the gas?

I boiled some water in the tallest pan we have then dipped the coat hanger in and used pliers to bend it, i found running it under a cold tap each time the bend was where i wanted it to be saved a lot of time.

Finding round coat hangers can be difficult, i imagine D.I.Y shops would sell something that could be used instead.
